TANTRA SPEED DATE
More than Dating, âIt’s Yoga for your Love Life! â
What is Tantra Speed Date?
Tantra Speed Date is a fresh new take on dating that combines a relationship skills class with a Puja-style “speed date.” Firstly, we help singles step into healthy relationship roles–something most of us were not taught in school. Then through fun connection exercises from various practices (such as Tantra, meditation, partner yoga, actor’s improv, eye gazing, dance) you have an opportunity to practice getting to know someone in a more meaningful way.
As a result people walk away not only with matches, but with new skills, and often a new perspective on what relationships can be. Our daters say it sure beats the other options for meeting people, and our 95% match rate agrees!
Our facilitators are trained to create a safe and fun atmosphere which supports daters in stepping into their best, most authentic selves. And what better way to meet a mate? This is why we believe attendees can’t stop raving about it!
Start your next relationship with your best foot forward.

San Francisco Chronicle: “In the quest for love and connection in San Francisco’s notoriously challenging dating world, the ceremony is a bold and worthy risk.”
NY Magazine’s ‘The Cutâ: “I saw plenty of connections being made. men and women gazing at each other, laughing, and thanking each other. “
Metro UK: “An opportunity to meet someone face-to-face in an honest environment without the endless messaging, game-playing and faux confidence. Dating without the booze and the bullshit.”
Frequently Asked Questions
The exercises are non-romantic, based in basic human connection: verbal exercises, light partner yoga, dance, breathing and meditation, eye-gazing, conscious touch (holding hands, hands on heart). things that go a bit beyond the obligatory “what do you do/where are you from.” And you are always invited to participate however you choose.
What’s unique is that each exercise has a kernel of positive relating skills. So you’re practicing healthy relationship skills while you’re having fun!
- Doors open at the published start time. That’s when we check you in and give you your dating materials (everyone must check in to participate). You also receive a playing card for our IceBreaker game. You’ll have until the ceremony begins to play the game. 20 minutes after start time–we begin to take folks from the waiting list (subject to capacity and gender balance.) 30 minutes after start time–the IceBreaker game concludes and we close the doors to begin the ceremony. Anyone that hasn’t checked in before this time will not be able to participate. (See our late/cancellation policy below).
You’ll want to look good, yet also be comfortable enough to stand, move, and sit cross-legged. There isn’t a tremendous amount of movement, so we’ve had some folks show up after work in suits (and they’ve managed okay) but you want to be able to move comfortably. Don’t worry about shoes, we’ll take those off before we start.
And remember, you’re going on a date. So do make sure to groom yourself and have good hygiene as appropriate to interact with potential dates. Please not strong scents as some are sensitive to that.

Oren & Karina are Engaged!
ÂI am Karina, Orenâs now fiancÃ©e, from the night Oren and I met at one of your Tantra Speed Date nights. I wanted to thank you for doing the work that you do. Oren was my first âdateâ that night. I believe your event helped me to step out of my usual means of looking for romantic connection and helped me connect with someone that I might never have run into otherwise. The event itself was so healing on its own and the healing has just continued to unfold as the love between Oren and I grows and matures. We are now on our first trip abroad together in Poland. He proposed to me in the Tatra Mountains and I obviously said yes. Thank you so much for helping to bring this love together. Keep up the gifting of the crucial medicine that you are sharing with the world. â
